Although tattoos are designed to be permanent, laser technology can break up ink pigments in the skin to reduce their appearance and even remove them completely. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we offer laser tattoo removal treatments to residents of Columbia, North Augusta and Evans, GA.
What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal uses non-invasive laser technology to target ink pigments in the skin. The heat delivered via laser energy causes the pigment to break up and fade from view. This process is performed without harming the skin tissue surrounding the tattoo, resulting in a safe and effective tattoo removal treatment. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we use the Enlighten® laser system by Cutera® for laser tattoo removal.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
The cost of your laser tattoo removal treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the treatment area and the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is Enlighten® Tattoo Removal?
Enlighten® tattoo removal uses the Enlighten® laser system. It combines multiple wavelengths of light with varied durations of exposure to produce dramatic improvements in as little as one treatment. The Enlighten® tattoo removal treatment is safe for all skin types and all areas of the body. It is even effective for treating difficult tattoo colors such as green and blue.
What is the Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Like?
The laser tattoo removal treatment is quick and comfortable, so no anesthetic is required. During treatment, the Enlighten® laser system will be used to deliver precise laser energy to the desired tattoo. Many patients compare this process to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin, but find it tolerable.
What Can I Expect After My Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment?
After your laser tattoo removal, you may notice redness or sensitivity in the treated area. However, these effects are common and typically fade within a day or two. You should notice results in the appearance of your tattoo within a few weeks of treatment. For optimal results, multiple treatments are almost always necessary. Dr. Austin will discuss the best number and frequency of treatments with you during your consultation.
